From the desk of Mayor Bill Cervenik

I hope you have enjoyed the beautiful weather we have had over the past few months.  I love the summer and have greatly appreciated being outdoors.  As you know, summer is also the season for road repairs and we have several significant projects that are still underway. Below is a brief update on some of the projects:

  • Waste water construction projects are continuing.  Senior Center parking areas are being restored.  The park and walking trails are in the process of being refurbished.  Traffic will be maintained on Bliss Lane throughout the construction project.

  • Babbitt Road from Lakeshore Boulevard to Lakeland Boulevard, and Babbitt Road to Lakeland Solid Disposal Facility near the I-90 underpass. Repairs to the road surface are being done now.  Shortly, Babbitt Road will be resurfaced from Lakeshore Boulevard to Lakeland Boulevard.

  • East 250th Street Resurfacing. The County is resurfacing East 250th Street. The project is anticipated to be completed in November.

  • Tracy Avenue new roadway, sidewalks and curbs from East 215 to East 222 Street.  Expected completion date November 15.  East 215 Street from Ivan to South Lakeshore Boulevard has been paved.

  • East 222 from Milton Ave to Lakeland Boulevard.  Dominion East Ohio Gas is replacing the gas mains on East 222nd Street from Lakeland Boulevard to Lake Shore Boulevard.  There will be periodic interruptions in the traffic.  The sewer project at East 222nd Street and Kennison has taken longer than expected due to underground complications.  We will keep you updated.

  • Dominion East Ohio Gas is replacing gas mains on St. Clair Avenue from East 222nd Street to Babbitt and on East 224th Street from Chardon Road to Hadden Road and Euclid Avenue from Upper Valley Drive to East 195th Street.  Traffic will be maintained during these projects.

  • ODOT’s Bridge Elimination Project on the South Marginal at East 260th Street is scheduled to be completed by November 15th.  The roadway will be repaired and partially paved by mid-November.

  • Resurfacing of various side streets is underway with completion by the end of September.  Signs will be posted prior to the project beginning.

I realize that road work can be inconvenient and at times somewhat aggravating.  But all of these projects are necessary and needed.  And what would summer be without orange barrels? 

I look forward to seeing you all very soon.

God Bless,

Mayor Bill Cervenik
